Children and adolescents struggle with questions of right and wrong as do adults. This short introduction to ethics explains four basic ideas in ethics in simple language, using examples that will be meaningful to young readers. The book is written to be read independently by high school students, but parents and teachers can use it in discussions of a range of ethical questions.
The theories of ethics are western, but the book is Indian, meaning that it is written in Indian English and uses Indian examples.
